WOUNDEDSPiRiT Chats of New Music and Playing Live!

Stadium indie rockers WOUNDEDSPiRiT have a debut album out, with a follow-up album released not that long ago. Newer music is also in the works and expected this summer time! This band goes into chat about wanting to play live, releasing new content and another album come this next year.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

The band was formed originally in 1988, during the 90s we received airplay on Radio one and toured Europe but never really going anywhere. In 2000 we called it a day, we were all starting to get settled down and the band was not a priority anymore it had run its course. We reformed again in 2016 for a charity gig and had so much fun we decided to record a single that led to a video then ultimately our debut album FOREVERyoung which was released in 2018 and won album of the year at the Black Country music awards. We wanted to record a 2nd album but only 2 original members wanted to carry on and that was myself Jason Kelly(vocals`) and Elton McTaggart(drums) so we spent the next few years writing the 2nd album and putting together a new band, the 2nd album is out now called U ME AND THE OCEAN and the line up of the band is Jason Kelly- vocals, Elton Mctaggart-drums, Rob Roberts-bass, Steven Scaife-lead guitar, Mark Smith - keys/synth and Darren Thorpe -guitar and vocals

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

I got the name from school, reading about the history of the Native American.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend? 

The band is based in the Black Country, West Bromwich is where the band would call home, the local music scene like venues need support over the next 12 months when lockdown restrictions are lifted but local bands to look out for are The Pagans SOH, liberty Lies, Alex Ohm and singer /songwriter BETHANYA.

4. How would you describe your style?

We are influenced by synth guitar music, so The Killers, Simple Minds and Gary Numan. I would describe our sound as STADIUM INDIE-ROCK.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

Debut album FOREVRY young 2018 and our latest album was released 2020 called U ME AND THE OCEAN, our debut album was songs we had written 25 years previously and it was a labor of love, stand out tracks are 11Months3Weeks6Days and Fake News our latest album is a musical journey of genres, it's more powerful and dynamic in its production, play from start to finish and then u will understand the different genres and sounds, its a fantastic album that we are very proud of.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

We are releasing 3 more singles off the album with videos and then later in the year we plan to release a new single which is being recorded in May 2020.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

We will be playing our first gig in August2021 at the robin2 in Bilston, we plan to do lots of small sets in 2021, 2022 we already have a headline show booked at the 700 capacity Robin2, so we have plans for the next 18 months on releases and shows.

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band? 

This year is about coming together live on stage as a band and recording a couple of new tracks. 2022 we hope to put together a tour and then release our 3rd album late 2022.
